London Centre for Book Arts (LCBA) is an open-access educational and resource centre dedicated to book arts. We are based in what was once the heart of London’s print industry in Fish Island, close to Hackney Wick in east London.

LCBA fosters and promotes artists working in book form and self-publishing. We offer access to specialist printing and binding facilities, and run workshops on a variety of subjects related to book arts. We encourage collaboration and dialogue, and run an exhibition programme highlighting work being done regionally and beyond.

In the studio we have a range of tools and equipment for bookbinding, reprographics and print finishing, letterpress typesetting and printing and other book arts techniques, which are all available for use by qualified studio members and workshop participants after an induction.
